Sneak Peek into Alabama Housing Case Study at NCSHA Housing Credit Connect 2021

ProLink Solutions is showcasing a case study on the Hardest Hit Fund program with Alabama Housing Finance Authority at NCSHA’s Housing Credit Connect conference in June this year. In 2010, as the nation navigated the economic and housing market downturn, the U.S. Department of the Treasury established the Hardest Hit Fund (HHF). Approximately 20 states developed locally-tailored HHF programs and rolled out approximately $10 billion collectively nationwide. ProLink Solutions’ HHF software product has supported some of these states in their program implementations, including Alabama Housing.

In our interview with Cathy James, Business Development Director with Alabama Housing, we asked questions such as “How did ProLink’s homeowner portal help your agency streamline the application process?”, “How did ProLink’s agency portal help your agency improve productivity and efficiency?”, and “Tell us about ProLink’s reporting capabilities”.

We invite you to watch our case study video on June 21 through 24 at the Housing Credit Connect conference hosted by the National Council of State Housing Agencies (NCSHA). You can find the video located on the event platform homepage throughout the duration of the conference.
